Everybody loves the iPhone! TheFeed loves the iPhone! We can't wait to sell ours on eBay for $2000 on June 30th! Some new technical specs have been revealed that came out of WWDC relating to the iPhone's browser capabilities and some guidelines for creating sites and applications to be viewed on the device.

In addition to being able to use your finger to scroll, zoom, pan, and flip off poor people who don't have a sweet phone like you, you will be able to view Quicktime video and audio as well as grab phone details directly from websites.

Tech specs and more after the jump.

Apple has set these guidelines for developing websites and web applications for the iPhone:

- 10MB max html size for web page
- Javascript limited to 5 seconds run time
- Javascript allocations limited to 10MB
- 8 documents maximum loaded on the iPhone due to page view limitations
- Quicktime used for audio and video

Note that while it does support limited Javascript, it will not support Java. Flash is not supported either. We don't know if that means video sites like YouTube.com and Break.com will be viewable on the phone or not, but let's hope so. Otherwise, why are we paying $600 for something that can't even play a video of some dudes humping an ottoman.

Apple has decided to lock down the iPhone's OS and will only be allowing users and 3rd party developers to make applications that will run through the built-in browser. Web developers, start your engines. If you even want to make a website that can only be viewed properly on a device no one will have. Do you?
